Over the last two decades important problems of modern communication technology have been solved by means of optimization methods. In this lecture the associated theory and solving methods are provided. They will be demonstrated in a multitude of active examples from information theory and communication technology, e.g., power adaptation in mobile networks and rate adaptation for multiple access networks. Key aspects will be modeling, convex optimization, Lagrange duality, and Karush-Kuhn-Tucker conditions.
